NEW ORLEANS – The Louisiana Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG Louisiana) will host the Second Annual Louisiana’s Got Talent, a small business exposition, on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, at Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel in conjunction with Global Entrepreneur Week.

         The free expo, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., provides the region’s small businesses networking opportunities and a place to showcase their talents and expertise to a procurement officer from some of New Orleans’ top companies.

         Exhibitors will be representatives of the outstanding talent listed on ACG Louisiana's Excellent Small Business list – an integrated referral network of approved small businesses with an outstanding track record, who provide excellent goods and/ or services and who have the desire and capacity to grow.

         Dozens of excellent small businesses will have tables exhibiting their companies and capabilities. The half-day expo is designed to showcase excellent small businesses and cultivate connections with larger companies in the Greater New Orleans business community.

         During the expo, some of the region's industry leaders will engage in SpeedNetworking sessions with the excellent small businesses. The SpeedNetworking sessions are short, pre-arranged meetings that allow prospective vendors or subcontractors to learn the specific needs, requirements and opportunities for becoming a vendor for the top businesses in the Greater New Orleans area.

         Capping off the event will be a catered cocktail reception for less formal networking among participants and ACG Louisiana members.
